Shorten Long URLs – Tiny URL

As websites get more and more complex, the length of URL’s (web addresses) seems to get longer and longer. This can cause problems when emailing URLs, using Twitter and other web services, or trying to recite URLs to others. TinyURL.com and other services have stepped in to fix this problem with the innovative new web 2.0 service of shortening URLs. These services provide a redirect from a shorter web address to the long and cumbersome address you need to reach. The website you want to email to a friend: http://digitalprinter.blogspot.com/2008/11/how-to-enlarge-low-resolution-images.html Once entered into TinyURL.com you receive: http://tinyurl.com/6dmz75 They also allow custom short URLs: http://elevateprinting.com Becomes: http://tinyurl.com/elevatep Another added effect of this services is that you can hide the true domain and web address you are sending people to. This can unfortunately be used for some less ethical purposes. Other Similar Websites & Services: bit.ly is.gd Tweetburner (Twurl) urlShort
